Junior science academy gives students chance to present scientific talk


The Kentucky Junior Academy of Science (KJAS) invites students to share their scientific research (including research for a science fair project) at its annual meeting April 27 at Kentucky State University in Frankfort.

The organization is open to any middle or high school student in Kentucky regardless of their participation or performance in a science fair.

Students must submit an abstract and a research paper less than 10 pages long. Students at the KJAS meeting will prepare a 10-minute talk with slides about their research to share with peers. Students with winning presentations will be eligible to participate in the American Junior Academy of Science meeting in February 2020 in Seattle.

Kentucky Academy of Science graduate and professional members are invited to volunteer as judges for the competition.

The registration deadline is March 20. Visit the KJAS website for more information.
